Texas Wesleyan student and esports athlete Jacob Chesney was among the thousands of fans to get a first look at Arlington’s brand new esports stadium. He discussed how important the new venue is to the growing competitive video gaming industry.

"When you have something that’s set aside specifically for esports, I think that’s the kind of legitimacy this sort of thing needs,” Chesney told Fox 4.
